The Lion Inside

No matter your size, we all have a mouse AND a lion inside! One of my favourite picture books of all time, The Lion Inside is an utterly feel good story about one little mouse trying to make himself heard and noticed among the other animals and discovering along the way that even the smallest of us has the heart of a mighty lion. Bright’s rhyming is on point and Jim Field’s illustrations are fantastically quirky! The contrasting personalities of the mouse and lion are so effortlessly expressed through the tiniest details. Important messages of bravery, finding your voice and making friends with the most unlikely of animals! If you’ve read and loved Rachel Bright be sure to check out her other books, The Koala Who Could, The Squirrels Who Squabbled and her newest book The Way Home for Wolf out in 2019!

The Koala Who Could

From the bestselling creators of The Lion Inside comes a story about how taking a chance can open the door to exciting new adventures.

Sometimes change comes along whether we like it or not ... but if you let it, change can be the making of you.

Kevin isn’t sure he likes change though, he prefers things the way they’ve always been, up there in his tree with his leaves where everything moves slowly.

But perhaps Kevin needs to take a chance, otherwise he might miss out on all the fun.

The Squirrels Who Squabbled

Two greedy squirrels learn to share in the third hilarious rhyming adventure from the bestselling creators of The Lion Inside and The Koala Who Could.

Greedy squirrels Cyril and Bruce both have their sights on a very special prize: THE VERY LAST NUT OF THE SEASON! As the nut bounces crazily though the forest, the squirrels race after it, between the trees, over boulders, down the river and - ARGH! - right to the edge of a waterfall! Working together might be the only way to save themselves now ...

The Way Home for Wolf

Wilf is as strong and independent as a wolf cub can be. He doesn't need help from his friends and family - whatever it is, he can do it ALL BY HIMSELF. But when Wilf finds himself lost and alone in the snow and chill of an Arctic night, he discovers something important - sometimes we all need the help of a friend to keep us safe and show us the way.
